Electrical Problem

Ya, I am rebuilding my server (I have been for months).  But, the parts are ACTUALLY going to be here in a few days so all this crap should start working.  For some reason, my band-aid router won't allow links to work to my current computer; lame

Electrical Problem

WOOHOOOOO !!!!! I finally got a chance to get under the dash ... looked around, didn't find much.  So, I spun the fuse box around (it's held in place with just one screw, once removed, you can spin it and see the back of it). Fuses 4, 8 and 12 (power windows) are all fed with a thick orange wir...

Electrical Problem

.. oh ya, and I am ruling out short since the remote start makes the system work.  If I had a short, I would either be melting wires or blowing the fuses for my remote start relays.

Electrical Problem

Remote start system is working fine; all it does is feed some random wires power (namely ACC#1 and ACC#2) that are helping my car out. I decided to check, and the only 4 relays that are attached to my starting system (these make up the remote start) are AOK. This is frustrating ... my power windows ...

Euro style headlamps

Don't ask me how the hell this happened, but in the winter I managed to crack both my lowbeam lights.  Not sure if it was the cold + DRLs or if I just suck but I need two new ones now. Ok, I would PREFER to get the E-Type beam pattern ones, or at LEAST something with a replaceable bulb but I am...

Z26 vs Base 94-96 doorpanels

That's ... it ?  That's lame.  So I can get base ones and just peel my "fuzzy" part out.  Booyah.

Z26 vs Base 94-96 doorpanels

What exactly is the difference between the base and "Z26" door panels?

I can't find any good pics and, the pics I "CAN" find, they look the same.

Basically, I have a set of Z26 ones but I want another set to hack up.  The only ones that I am getting replies on are new.

Water leaking inside when it rains.

http://i145.photobucket.com/albums/r224/ettorec/Car.jpg is where my current leak is ... yay project leakyness.

From what I can tell, the seam that goes down straight from the drivers side cowl drain, and the seam inside the cowl are the main culprits of the wet interior syndrome.

aftermarket ECU?

Not 100% sure about this computer but I have heard only spectacular things about an ECU called the megasquirt.  If all you're doing, however, is removing a rev limiter ... uhm, there must be an easier way.

Euro Headlights

Again, I have just looked @ the light patterns and, as it seems, the integral reflector in the H4 bulbs (low filament it appears) causes the pattern to be either "flat" on the top portion of the pattern or "open".  So, it seems like lowbeams using both inner and outer lights is both realistic a...

k&n type filter(will it help)

It'll add an immeasurable amount of power (in the orders or 1/4's of a HP) but your car will sound faster because the K&N lets more noise thru.

As well, they're "rechargeable" so you don't have to throw it out.

Euro Headlights

You can use your factory wiring, but you will need to cut off the ends because the Euro ones don't have the same style bulbs as your current headlights do. The relay setup is mainly to get more light output out of the current lights.  As well, the "small light" is actually completely useless in...

Shift Cables

They're obviously melting somwhere along the cable, just make a metal plate that "shields" the cable from the heat source.  All you have to do is make sure the sheild neither touches the cable or the source of the head.  Think of it kindof like holding up your hand to block out the heat fr...
